This paper describes an action research process, which is used to implement the Code Review Process (CRP). The CRP was used as one of the assessment methods in a third year undergraduate Web Application Development course. There are two cycles in this study, 2005 Semester 2 and 2006 Semester 2. Trend study surveys were used to collect the data. This data together with the author’s observation and the students’ comments were analysed. The issues of the CRP were identified. A set of teaching strategies were proposed to enhance the CRP. The initial objectives of the CRP were achieved. The improvements introduced in the second cycle were successful in helping to achieve the initial objectives. For further improvement, the students need to gain more peer review related skills.
